The political (real) reason for the move to the four conference format:

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Northeast Division

Buffalo
Montreal
Ottawa
Quebec City (former Coyotes)
Toronto

Atlantic Division

Boston
New Jersey
NY Islanders
NY Rangers
Philadelphia

Southeast Division

Carolina
Florida
Pittsburgh
Tampa Bay
Washington


WESTERN CONFERENCE

Central Division

Columbus
Dallas
Detroit
Nashville
St. Louis


Northwest Division

Calgary
Chicago
Edmonton
Minnesota
Winnipeg

Pacific Division

Anaheim
Colorado
Los Angeles
San Jose
Vancouver

I can see at minimum, nine "no" votes for a relocation to QC. Don't forget that a two-thirds majority (20 out of 30) is needed to approve any relocation. With the likes of Snider, Ilitch, Wirtz, and Mario being alienated by this potential alignment, moving the Coyotes east to QC within the six division format is DOA.
